We got there and the girls had already picked their gifts for the teacher (that's the whole reason we went, so they could make a Christmas craft for their kindergarten teacher, fyi!)---luckily, they chose an ornament to paint. The price tag on the ornaments were MUCH better than a huge vase or platter! :)
Tillie quickly got to work when she started complaining about her tummy "not feeling so good." Uh oh. Luckily, they had a little tiny bathroom there, so I told her to take her time. Poor baby, her tummy was so rumbly and she felt horrible and kept saying, "Oh, mom, I don't know what to do! I just don't feel so good." Next thing I know she's throwing up everywhere. :( It was so sad. She threw up a few times while we were in that tiny bathroom, and when she felt like we could leave, we quickly left the bathroom, paid for the ornament, wrote her name on the ornament, and grabbed a quick picture with the girls. Look at this poor pale and fake smile face below!
Fast forward to the next day::: Because Tillie was a mess, we decided that Aaron would stay home from church with her (I was on organ duty that Sunday, blast!). And, it just made sense for him to keep the boys home too. Here they were reading a book while Tillie slept. I love this picture.
I love the description the best. We really thought hard about what our goals were for the night---Using your Patriarchal Blessing, Rediscovering your temple worship, and personalizing your prayers. Great stuff. It was a good night and even Becca made a surprise visit that night!
